[The Japanese Tradition of Tea Ceremonies]
Japanese tea ceremonies are not only about pouring and drinking tea. The host of the ceremony prepares a tea room with utensils, food, and traditional snacks depending on the guest and season, while also making sure the outside greenery is properly taken care of. This tradition is one of the roots of omotenashi, a culture of hospitality that continues to be a major part of Japanese society today.
